Frequently Asked Questions

Why choose to subdivide?

Our clients choose to divide for various reasons. Some choose to downsize the amount of land they are required to maintain, or to build an adjoining property for family members.

Recognising that there is financial gain in dividing land, many use the money to:

  • pay off debt or top up their superannuation;
  • for renovations and improvements to their existing property;
  • to buy a car; or
  • take an extended holiday.

Can I divide my block?

How do you compare to other land development consultants?

What will it cost to subdivide my block?

Based on a standard “1 into 2” Torrens Title land division, the total cost to have the plans lodged with the Land Services SA is approximately $22,000. This includes all government statutory fees, SA Water standard connection fees and our professional fees. All our quotations provide you with detailed, itemised amounts.

How long does a land division application take?

Generally, a land division will require 4-6 months from date of lodging initial application until new Certificates of Title are issued. This timeframe depends on the time a council and other government authorities take to assess and approve a proposed land development application.
